The decor was just the type of boutique experience we wanted in Milwaukee with an industrial feel. The location was spectacular with a lot to do within walking or a 5 minute drive. I would highly recommend it!

Very unique. Fantastic room! Very friendly staff. Very clean. Food was excellent, had to eat in the bar as restaurant was closed. Breakfast was not available. Definitely not a big detraction though. A zillion times better than chain hotels! Would definitely recommend.

The hotel was a motorcycle theme it was really cool! Also, we were greeted with a brandy old-fashioned at the service desk. It was a lot of fun!

The hotel has a dark edge to it, of course it was a dreary weather weekend, but the interior of the hotel is overall dark as well. Our room was nice, the bed comfortable. I wish it would have had two comfortable chairs by the round table because the desk chair had seen better days. We liked the library area of the hotel, it was pleasant with music, books and games.
